Default Comparisons for Strat Tallboys & Half Breeeds requested~~

They are rated at a similar 7.2 & 7.8k, respectively. Both being slightly over the top SC's, I wonder how they compare in attitude. I s'pose I'm looking for something relatively vintage 60's sounding, but a bit hotter, with those stellar sounding middle positions. I wouldn't be adverse to mixing the Talls w/ a Halfbreed in the bridge.... or any other combo of models!!
Would the Muy's be overkill & take me further from vintage?
Thanks all!!

Default reccomendation

Try the Dual Calibrated set....it's my personal favorite.

Plenty of Vintage & quack....plenty of push...

The Muy Grande in the bridge still retains a vintage tone, just "bigger." I know that's hard to comprehend but it makes more sense when you play it. As Dave said "Dual Calibrated" is good, I'm definitely a fan of the Halfbreed in neck or mid position.

Default Dual Calibrated Sets??

Thanks Dave & Smitty,,,,, ah,, I see them now!! How does the calibration work,,, I mean, are the balanced for 'equal' output, or calibrated to some other standard? And if they are set for the same K, I assume they sound different & unique? (I see 3 diff. pups with 3 diff. outputs, which is what I believed some folks may want!)
thanks again!!
